ODFW is proposing temporary harvest limits and closures for coastal wild fall Chinook fisheries due to low escapement in 2018 and poor forecasts for this year. For more information about staff proposals, see
These proposed temporary regulation changes provide fishing opportunity while reducing harvest and increasing spawning escapement of wild fall Chinook. The meetings are to seek public input that will help balance these two objectives and assist managers should additional regulations be needed during the season.
Proposed harvest reduction measures are in line with actions developed through the 2014 Coastal Multi-Species Conservation and Management Plan for addressing low wild fall Chinook abundance. Proposals for streams and rivers from Euchre Creek to the California border are also in line with the 2013 Rogue Fall Chinook Conservation Plan.
